Liverpool paid tribute to club legend Ray Clemence ahead of the Premier League clash against Leicester.
Former England goalkeeper Clemence, who made 665 appearances for Liverpool over a 14-year tenure, died earlier this month at the age of 72.
Liverpool used Sunday’s game at Anfield to honor Clemence. Current goalkeepers Alisson, Adrian and Caoimhin Kelleher helped lay a wreath in front of The Kop before kick-off.
The group was silent next to goalkeeping coach John Achterberg for a minute. Alisson wore a replica of Clemence’s shirt from the 1981 European Cup final, which he later placed next to the wreath.
Both players and staff applauded a minute before kick-off to honor Clemence, who won three European cups and five top division titles during his career at Liverpool.
Liverpool coach Jürgen Klopp praised Clemence earlier this month as « an exceptional player and a wonderful person ». .
« We should never forget that it’s great players who make great teams and clubs. You just have to listen to LFC’s legends from its day to understand its meaning, « said Klopp.
« They say it better than I ever could; that Ray Clemence is one of the reasons our club has been so special all these years later. He was one of the cornerstones on which so much of the club’s success has been built.
« Our feeling at this moment is of course overwhelmingly sad, but it is also an appreciation. Our fans will fondly remember an extraordinary player and person who has contributed so much to Liverpool Football Club.
Clemence began his career at Scunthorpe United in 1966, where he played 46 games for the Third Division Club before Liverpool manager Bill Shankly left the 18-year-old for 18 in June 1967. 000 pounds bought.
The young goalkeeper had to budget his time on reserves before permanently replacing Tommy Lawrence during the 1969/70 season.
Clemence won five league titles, three European cups, two UEFA cups, the European Super Cup, the FA Cup and the League Cup at Anfield.
From September 1972 to March 1978, he played 336 games without missing a single game, while only two more players played for the club’s first team – Ian Callaghan and Jamie Carragher.
Liverpool’s 1-0 win over Real Madrid in the 1981 European Cup final at Parc des Princes was Clemence’s last game for the Reds before going for 300. 000 pounds moved to Tottenham.
He made his league debut for Spurs against Middlesbrough in August 1981, playing for the London club over 300 times.
An injury forced Clemence to lose his place on the team for the 1984 UEFA Cup final win against Anderlecht, but he sat on the bench in a match that became famous when Tony Parks saved twice on penalties.
He reached a fifth FA Cup final in 1987 when Spurs lost to Coventry and was among a select group of players to appear in five or more FA Cup finals.
An Achilles injury against Norwich in October 1987 forced Clemence to retire from the game in 1988. He later moved to the coaches in Tottenham and England and headed Barnet between 1994 and 1996.
